A home loan just for Native Americans

If you're a member of a federally recognized tribe, you may be eligible for a Native American Home Loan, which is backed by The Office of Loan Guarantee within HUD’s Office of Native American Programs. These Section 184 home loans come with lots of security and extra benefits, including a low down payment requirement.

  • Because your loan is backed by the Office of Native American Programs, only a low down payment is required to buy your home. Down payments can be gifted and the seller can contribute up to 6% of the purchase price.
  • For our Native American Home Loans, we charge market interest rates so if you have less-than-perfect credit, you won't be penalized when you go to buy your home.
  • Our mortgage bankers offer personalized service and are available to walk you through the home-buying process. Find a local mortgage banker using the link below or give us a call. If you have existing mortgage-related questions, call mortgage customer service at 800-947-7061.

  • In addition to the calculated monthly payments, annual percentage rate (APR) offers a good apples-to-apples comparison between loans. APR takes into account the varying discount points, closing costs and fees that are typically added into the loan amount and financed over the term of the loan. If the fees are paid "out-of-pocket" then the APR will be the same as the stated interest rate. Use this loan comparison calculator to help determine the best loan option for you.


Additional Information

Apply with our online application. It walks you through the process and allows you to submit documents securely using your phone, tablet or computer. You also get 24/7 access to your loan in progress and a direct line of communication with your loan officer to make sure your loan stays on track for closing!

After your application is completed, your mortgage banker will contact you to answer any questions you may have and request items if they need additional documentation.

Once everything is finalized, we'll send you the application package. This package will contain papers for you to sign and a list of items we'll need to verify the information you provided about your finances during the online application.

We'll also order an appraisal from a licensed appraiser who is familiar with home values in your area.

You'll also need to obtain title insurance. If you are purchasing a new home, we'll work with the real estate broker or seller to ensure the title work is ordered as soon as possible. If you are refinancing, we'll take care of ordering the title work for you.

After we receive all your paperwork — your application package, the appraisal and the title work — we'll contact you to schedule your loan closing. If you are purchasing a home, we'll also schedule the closing with the real estate broker and the seller.

The closing will take place at the office of a title company or attorney in your area who will act as our agent. A few days before closing your Mortgage Banker will contact you to walk through the final information.
